The Derby Run Club is excited to present the 26th annual Not 4 Wimps race! We are excited to duplicate last year’s course. More trail and less dike running and a few more challenges for those that accept our invitation to the N4W survivor club. The only thing “softer” about the 2018 event is the finish line accommodations. We’ve added in plumbing and a warm place to enjoy your post run home-baked goodies at the Derby Recreation Center. There’s even a warm shower and locker facilities available if you get a little dirty. Prior survivors will assure you that the only requirements are a superior fitness level, less than optimal judgment, guts, and a desire to accomplish something that most folks can’t do.
"No Frills" Race
This is a timed course that is marked well, but it is still a trail course! If you don't see any course markings, you are going the wrong way! If you are not leading the course and you come across a spider web, you may be going the wrong way! If you get lost and tack on some extra mileage, well then you got some extra bang for your buck! You're not going to get an age group medal, or a finishers medal, or a pretty shirt with this race. When you get done, we have some awesome giveaways to go along with the pride of knowing that you didn't wimp out and take the shortcut back. Feel free to also brag to your friends that you finished a challenging race in the middle of February, while everyone else is still in hibernation mode, or stuck on a treadmill wishing for some new scenery! This race is a bargain, and we want to keep it that way!
Packet pickup will start at 12:30 pm the day of the race. Race day registration will be available for $30.00. If you choose to switch between race distances, simply notify registration during packet pickup. There will be no charge for doing so, only a little bit of mockery if you move down in distance!
